You can shop for gardening gifts or attend workshops on creating your own hand-made holiday gifts including terrariums, winter planters, bulb planting – or try quirky and charming ideas like making a garden poetry box or tiny fairy garden.
Two of the workshops (Linda Beutler on fall and winter arrangements, $40, and Nancy Goldman on "tiny gardens for fairies, frogs and ferns", $30) require pre-registration.
You can also drop off donations for the food bank – canned or packaged goods and produce are all fair game, or enter a raffle for beautiful gifts, to raise money for a new Portland area botanical garden.
